More than just support workers

Our Social Carers are like your mentor, friend, big brother or sister. They're like family.

How we help

We provide social support through activities like arts & craft, exercise, household tasks, grocery shopping, transportation, and companionship for social events.

Carers you can trust and rely on

A group of people pose for a photo in an office. A range of ages, genders and ethnicities is represented.

All our Social Carers go through a comprehensive vetting process. We only approve applicants we'd want looking after our own families.

  1. An online test to ensure they will honour and uphold our Community Values
  2. All appropriate industry checks (e.g. NDIS Worker Check for those supporting NDIS participants)
  3. A minimum of two glowing references from previous colleagues and personal contacts
  4. Where social supports are involved, a group interview to evaluate problem-solving and interpersonal skills
  5. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination in accordance with their state government's requirements
